This Week’s Menu


Lots of popular dishes for the Queen's birthday long weekend.

Apologies for the delay in publishing this week's menu. We have been busy with cooking lessons and Thai catering service. It's the Queen's birthday long weekend. I always wonder what would be the Queen's favourite Thai dish? Apparently she never reveals her favourite food for a clever reason-to stop the same dish being served at every banquet she attends. If you have plan get together with friends and family or heading to the shack or you just want a quiet restful weekend, you can make it more special by ordering a Thai meal from us. All you need to do is reheat and enjoy. Then you can spend more family quality time with your love ones. Just remember we are always on the end of the phone if you ever require any assistance with your menu choice.




Health Benefit of Fresh Thai Curry Paste

Thai curry comes from natural plants that provide strong medicinal properties. Despite the tremendous flavor, the purpose of a curry blend in the age before refrigeration was also to prevent food spoilage. Kaffir Lime Leaves. Kaffir leaves have antioxidant properties and contain volatile oils. A digestive aid, kaffir leaves cleanse the blood while helping maintain healthy teeth and gums. Kaffir can be applied to the hair and scalp, and it even prevents hair loss! It is also used as a deodorant. Lemongrass. Contains the volatile oil citral along with citronellal, both sedatives. Lemongrass detoxifies the liver, pancreas, kidney, bladder and the digestive tract. It reduces uric acid along with blood pressure, cholesterol, excess fats and other toxins. Lemongrass stimulates digestion, blood circulation, and lactation. Galangal Root. Contains the volatile oils alpha-pinene, cineole and linalool. It resembles ginger root and is known as the "defisher" as it reduces the fishy smell of foods. Galangal stimulates digestion, alleviates motion sickness and nausea, and reduces inflammation of the stomach and ulcers. Galangal root boosts the immune system, treats colds and flu, reduces fever and rheumatism, and freshens the breath. Galangal has antibacterial and antispasmodic properties. Shrimp Paste. A complete and concentrated food, it has healthy polyunsaturated fatty acids and is a powerful antioxidant. Next week we will share with you how shrimp paste is made.
